I don’t see them pushing the envelope any farther.
Water cooling? No! Most saws already have some advance built into the electronic coils. Electric start, been done, faild. Weight is number one, next is simplicity. The next real move will be to electric saws with high capacity capacitors instead of traditional batteries. Internal combustion engines as we know it are at the end of their lifespan. Some of the stuff you guys say.I wonder if the timing is fixed we’re we set it or does it advance electronically?
With the timing advancing electronically it’s easier to start.
If not since there playing with fuel injection why not have the timing electronically advance. The next problem will be heat sooner or later? Will we see a water cooled chain saw in the future? I predict we will. The more saws that go high tech will run hotter, the heat has to go somewhere. With no way to keep it cooler longevity could be a problem. I don’t see them pushing the envelope any farther.
